It works with individuals and groups who, for various reasons, are finding it difficult to access employment. Since its foundation in August 2004, the service has worked with hundreds of people who were seeking change in their lives through employment and helped them to identify and address the barriers and challenges that they have faced.

The Rural Employment Service (R.E.E.S) provides assistance to individuals to enter or re-enter employment including:

  • The long-term unemployed
  • Under Skilled People
  • Those experiencing social barriers to employment
